Forum: classic_tv Subject: I'm Feeling Depressed - What's some happy shows/films on IA?

I've been sick, unhappy, annoyed and depressed for a long time. What are some happy cheerful things I could watch on the Internet Archive? Please don't recommend "Royal Wedding" with Fred Astaire....I normally like his films, but I tried "Royal Wedding" a few years ago and it made me even more depressed and wanting to vomit.

I am sorry that it's a crappy patch of time for you . I would rec. a movie , but I have not yet explored IA in depth yet .

Trouble in Paradise ( 1932 )
Dinner at Eight ( 1933 )
Meet Me in St. Louis ( 1944 )

The last one is like chicken soup for me . I hope you can get outside for a bit this week end , and you are soon feeling better .

Try "Nothing Sacred". Hope it works for you.

After reading this, I had one program in mind that I watched when I was sick and depressed, and I thought it was really funny. But, I searched and didn't find it, so I uploaded it again, just for you Matthew. I hope you find it funny, and if you don't, please understand I had the best of intentions.

I had to pop in to offer my personal "always gets me out of a funk" movie title: BELA LUGOSI MEETS A BROOKLYN GORILLA, which is here on the IA.

A really crappy, absurd film, but always cracks me up. As I once told my other half, "This is so f-ing stoopid but I love it to pieces! Pass the pizza and ice cream! And tell the cat to stop biting my toes!"

Anyway, it may be worth a chuckle...or not.

Any of the Beverly Hillbilies, the Andy Griffth show(the one with the goat)the Dick vav Dyke show(avoid the one with Buddy's brother)Petticoat Junction (if it is still here)retrovison theater presents Who's on First(that one always cracks me up) and any of The Colgate Comedy Hour.
Hope you feel better, Mathew. "A merry eart doeth good like a medicine".

A merry earth ain't a bad idea, either!

I guess not but I was going for the scripture in the book in Proverb when my finger stuttered. Sigh :=)

THE film to get me out of a funk would be Sly Stallone's "Oscar", but it's not PD. And Cosmico, I love your sense of humor! Just love it!

The older I get, the sillier I become. Life's too short to be serious and grouchy.

Pass the root beer!
